Worked All Germany Contest

Worked All Germany Contest

Worked-All-Germany Contest is a typical "Single-Country-to-DX" contest with a long lasting tradition and more than 2000 log submitting participants plus several thousand more active. So WAG generates about 10 000 individual hours of competetive or relaxed activity and fun. You can collect German DOK for several DARC awards, especially the DLD which is supported by the DARC Community Logbook. Our participants between 10 and 95 years of age report about the enjoyment of meeting a lot of old and new friends, going to unsual locations like qrp-expeditions to hilltops or sharing experience with rookies of all ages at Multi-Operator Stations.

Thank you all for participating in WAG  :-)

60th edition of the Worked All Germany (WAG) Contest

To top

 The 60th edition of the Worked All Germany (WAG) Contest will take place in October 2020. The first WAG took place in 1959 as WADM, and this 19 times. From 1980 on it was called WA-Y2 due to the callsign reform in the GDR. Then 1989 began a politically exciting year, the year of the turnaround in the GDR. The events overturned and finally Germany was reunited on October 3rd. Only two weeks later the Worked All Germany Contest took place. Whether WADM, WAY2 or WAG, this contest on the third weekend of October has become a worldwide event.

From 1967 to 1977 single and multi-man stations were divided into license classes, then from 1978 on single and SWLs were divided into "under" and "over" 18 years. From 1981 the QRP class was introduced, from 1985 there was a separate class for YLs. The WAG 1990 started then with the classes SOP all band, SOP all band QRP, MOP 1TX, and SWLs - from 1992 SOP all band divided into CW and Mixed - from 2002 SOP additionally divided into < and > 100 Watt. From 2019 on additional SSB classes are available.

Since the first contest in 1959, the evaluator and manager was Klaus, DL1DTL (DM2ATL, Y21TL). Of course he always got support, in the last years from Christian DL8MBS and Heiko DL1RTL. After 50 years of contest evaluation, Klaus then officially handed over to Christian (DL8MBS) in 2013. In 2017 Heiko (DL1RTL) took over the job of contest manager.

Let's all listen to each other again when it's time for the third weekend in October for the 60th: " CQ WAG " !

WAG on our own behalf

After 50 years of DL1DTL managing WAG the task shifted 2013 to DL8MBS, together with DL1RTL. We hope that participants will not notice any difference in how things are handled. So we invite all contesters to join the activity in WAG and hope to meet you in October. And now:


Annette Coenen, DL6SAK, member of DARC board, honours DL1DTL with the "Goldene Ehrennadel" of DARC.
